This story left me with chills when I read of the National Parks link. In February 1999 a woman, her daughter, and a teen family friend disappeared while visiting Yosemite. Between February and March the bodies of all three females had been discovered. A motel handyman was later questioned and released. In July 1999 another woman, a Park Naturalist was murdered. And what the hell?!! You guessed it, that same creepy handyman was arrested and confessed to all four murders. LE had him once, but they didn't know it. This guy had a taste for killing women, so he may have murdered more that haven't been connected to him. Now after seeing how easy it is to "disappear" I would never travel without armed escorts in any National Parks that had wilderness areas. The Sund/Pelosi murders were a chilling reminder that even three women who carefully never left one another alone could not protect themselves against one blood-thirsty killer.

mama, yep, I bet the Lexis witnessed her mother's murder, and knew that her death was imminent. In fact, she may have wished for it as a release from this evil POS. I don't understand how her mother could ever have hooked up with this depraved monster.

Sorry I have not been on here had my dad in the hospital with blood clot in his lung. But even through all that I am sooooo glad they got this creep. I have a very close relative that is employed by Catahoula Parish Sheriffs dept. He is to be transferred here sometime today and the real process of justice will begin. Please keep this community in your prayers we are a VILLAGE. A very small community. Most of these folks have lived here for generations, generations and generations My family goes back to 9 generations. Close nit, God fearing and peaceful Community. There is only one small gas station, bank branch, elementary and high school don't know the population right off but it is low. This trail will be a strain on our little village. as a matter of fact you can see the elementary school from the courthouse no more than 100 yards. Thanks again for all your prayers and thoughts just please keep us there in your hearts as we continue to put this creep where he belongs. I will keep you posted on what it going on here as much as possible

La. grand jury indicts ‘dead’ man on kidnap charge

The Associated Press
Thursday, Nov. 18, 2010 | 2:30 p.m.

A Mississippi man who was declared dead in 1994 has been indicted by a federal grand jury in the kidnapping of a 12-year-old Las Vegas girl whose skeletal remains were found last month in central Louisiana.

Thomas Steven Sanders is scheduled to face a federal magistrate Friday at a detention hearing in Alexandria, La., on the kidnapping charge.

Stephanie A. Finley, a U.S. attorney in Louisiana, said in a news release Thursday that Sanders could face the death penalty if convicted of kidnapping 12-year-old Lexis Roberts, which allegedly resulted in her death.

Authorities in Louisiana's Catahoula Parish, where Lexis Roberts' body was found in the woods off a dirt road Oct. 8, say they will charge Sanders with first-degree murder in state court after he's processed on the federal charge.

Catahoula, it sounds like a amazing little town. Out here in Northern AZ, near where Suellen was found it is also very special. Yesterday on a drive back from Kingman on route 66 My wife and I saw 7 Golden Eagles. Most on telephone polls right on the side of the road. Two in trees.

You can see the stars from one horizon to the other. The Milky Way is clearly visible every cloud free night. Antelope, Dear, Elk, Horses and cattle line the hills and fields. Red Tailed Hawks and Bald Eagles are sighted daily, if you look.

Today I was up at Bearizona and ran into a lady from the vigil. She and her son put the bear tattoos ( washable ) on Lexis and Suellen. I gave her daughter ( Lexis age ) a stuffed little pink bear from one the other attendees had left. She told me her daughter sleeps with it every night, clutched tightly to her.

While out putting up posters I met others who had met them, heard stories of Lexis playing with the store cat at the Texico in Redlake off hwy 64.
A man who remembered meeting her at a gas station in Williams, saying how thrilled she was to be going to see the bears. I've gotten to know some of these bears pretty well, and I can imagine Lexis reaction to Jack, a 500 lb Black bear who will walk up to any car, and if you let him, climb up on the hood.

I know before the terror came, they were happy. That they saw Buffalo, Wolves, Red foxes, Bear Cubs, Burrows, Big horned sheep and many others as well as my friends the eagles...

They live on without their bodies and are free from pain and worry. May they remain in the light for ever.

May justice be swift and final

Me

Silence Does No Good, welcome to RC.

That was a very moving and vivid comment you left. I could visualize everything you said. And where you said "before the terror came, they were happy" that was very moving too.

Hi Silence, thank you for the peaceful image. Your community has embraced both Lexis and Suellen as well. It's difficult to fathom the evil that exists among us. I'll never be able to understand it.

"They live on without their bodies and are free from pain and worry. May they remain in the light for ever.

May justice be swift and final."


I agree. My sincerest sympathy goes out to the Roberts family for the loss of their loved ones, Lexis and Suellen.

Thank you Silence. We are a wonderful, peaceful community and to think that one of our own has done a thing like this is just unthinkable. Of course he has family here but from all my information they had NOTHING to do with him ????????????? Not sure about that. But that is to be discovered during the trial. Who knows. Blood is thicker than water. I know deep down in my heart of hearts that this isn't the first and wouldn't have been the last is he had not been caught

Piper; Thanks for the prays for Daddy . He is much better we have an appt in New Orleans next week to find out more. Continue to send prayers for him.

The one thing I want to say is that I have not forgotten those children who are still missing in our country. The news every night has some nightmare about another abducted or missing child to report. Everyone please be aware of your surrounding and the people around you . This is for your protection and maybe you will spot something out of the way like the truck stop employee who called in SANDERS> Bless her heart. I am soooo afraid she was to be his next victim. From her statements he was working on her. LORD HAVE MERCY.

His arraindment is today in ALexandria, LA. THe local news it to have a report on this at 5pm. Will know more then.

Thanks My Friends.

'Legally dead' man pleads not guilty to kidnapping

November 19, 2010

ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) — A Mississippi man who authorities thought had been be dead for more than 15 years pleaded not guilty Friday to kidnapping a 12-year-old girl who was found dead in remote Louisiana woods.

Thomas Steven Sanders, suspected of shooting Lexis Roberts of Las Vegas before dumping her body in central Louisiana's Catahoula Parish, said little Friday during the hearing in federal court in Alexandria, La.

Shackled and wearing an orange prison jumpsuit, the 53-year-old Sanders spent much of the hearing leaning forward in his seat and reading documents with his lawyer. Sanders had shaven off the bushy, white beard seen in police photographs before his capture.

James Kelly, sheriff of the parish where Roberts' body was found by hunters Oct. 8, also was at the hearing. Kelly said he'll charge Sanders with first-degree murder in state court when the federal government finishes processing him, possibly early next week.
